First off... which electrolytes NOT TO USE!
I'll compile a list of which electrolytes NOT to try, because they are harmful to yourself and other people.
1. SALT (Sodium Chloride)
(msg me if you have a solution to add to this list)
I would like to know what is the consequences using salt..
one is that it will make up Chlorine gas,
2 you are putting salt residue into your motor to burn? Don't know the long term effects that would have.
Using Salt as an electrolye is not only bad, but also ineffective.
So far the best "safe" mix I have found is 8 parts epsom salts, to 3 parts baking soda, per 2-2.5L of water.
it is the most conductive, thus draws the most amperes, thus works the best.
Every spoon added increased the amps drawn on the plates. Up until reached the max.

Thanks for the tip Mike.how are you measuring the parts?
Caustic Soda is perhaps the most commonly available and most effective. Their is another xxx E500 i'll find the full chem name.
Their are lots of side effects of Caustic Soda so follow the warning labels!
Im using Ocean Water, it works very well, but I get hot after about 20 miles.
I have 12 SS outlet covers 6+ / 6- about 3/8 inch apart. Im using threaded rod as connectors and am experiencing excessive corrosion. the HHO production is rapid though. I went from 28 hwy to better than 30mph around town. I havent pinpointed the hwy mileage, but will post that later.
Im considering mounting the unit on the front of the car for air cooling.
when using baking soda you are only making about 66% hydrogen and almost 30% carbon dioxide and even a littel carbon monoxide...not sure the exact figures anymore.
my tests have shown potassium hydroxide is by far the best and other than it stains clothes it does not really have an effect ...it does tingle a little if you touch it but thats a given with anything caustic
I'm not 100% clear on this sorry if i sound dumb but, why is epsom salt any different from regular salt?, what is it? i know women use it in a bath once in a while for there personal care, but how does it differ from regular sodium chloride? is it like sea salt?
